Subject: nice rag
This is a very cute ragtime composition in orchestral arrangement which I like a lot. It's not as popular as 12th Street rag, Maple Leaf etc., but it's still very good, and relatively easy and fun to play. Some contemporary bands often include it in their setlist, although not everyone plays the intro, which, in my opinion, is brilliant and probably the best part of the composition.
The quality of this recording is low because it was obviously recorded acoustically, and many decades did their job too. But it's still enjoyable.
Scott Joplin also recorded it, so you may want to check out his version too.
